Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Kodu

Description: 

Kodu is a rich tool for narrative creation and storytelling. Kodu lets you create games through a simple visual programming language. Kodu can be used to teach creativity, problem solving, storytelling, as well as programming. Anyone can use Kodu to make a game with no design or programming skills.

Kodu Teaches more than programming. Kodu introduces the logic and problem solving of programming. Kodu introduces conditions and sequences, which teaches cause and effect. Students learn about cooperation, logic and creativity in addition to programming.

What We Like: 

Great, student-friendly coding app. Doesn't require any previous coding experience.

Limitations: 

Only works with Windows.

Classroom Application: 
Teach students to code
